Founded in 2012, the Israeli start-up specializes in the pet life industry and is committed to improve pet quality of life through wearable technology. Leveraging advanced analytical methods and alerting models, the company has developed remote pet health and wellbeing monitoring solutions that track vital signs and other physiological data in real time.
The company’s proprietary low-power, non-invasive wireless smart collar features an array of sensors that continuously monitor dogs or cats in the clinic or at home. If abnormal vital signs, physiological or behavioral parameters are detected, the sophisticated cloud-based analytical engine evaluates and alerts caregivers and pet owners, allowing them to take preemptive action to protect pet health. The collar comes in three sizes suitable for cats and dogs weighing 3-6 kilograms (8 pounds).
The company employs professional veterinarians, certified and experienced software developers and qualified engineers. The company occupies a leading position in the wearable device market and has successful previous experience in international cooperation.
The company platform includes a non-invasive smart collar, suitable for both dogs and cats, and a SaaS (software as a service)-based subscription model to the company’s cloud-based analytics and alerting solution.
Unlike other wearable technology that measures only activity and/or location, the company’s collar measures seven biometric parameters on a continuous basis, including body temperature, pulse, caloric consumption, activity level, respiration, positions, HRV (heart rate variability, a major pain and stress marker in animals). The data is transmitted to a cloud-based analytics engine that sends real-time alerts to the pet owner, caregiver or veterinarian at the first indication of a medical or behavioral problem.
The company platform is the most advanced and comprehensive pet wearable solution in the world. Platform accuracy has been validated by leading universities and is being used in numerous clinical and academic studies. In addition, the company is currently working with several major pharmaceutical and food companies to identify and manage several common pet diseases – including epilepsy, allergies, heart disease and others – as well as pet pregnancy. The company’s products are available and deployed the US, South America, Europe and Australia.
The company is seeking those in industry for pet needs, like suppliers and distributors of healthy food and drugs for dogs and cats. They are also interested in information and communication technology (ICT) companies who sell bundle packages of smart home products or services – for example, for monitoring pets left home alone - and who can promote the collar and its use under a commercial agency agreement. Moreover, the company is seeking local telemedicine or smart home companies who would customize the company’s collar to fit their own product or service.
